The bike has the Competition Werkes system on it, so no cat, and a short can. Deafening without the DB killer, I run it WITH the baffle because the bike seems to like the little bit of backpressure - Noticeable difference in low end off idle torque (butt-o-meter) and the RapidBike autoadapt feature seems to have a much easier time. When it's wide open, the autotune just wants more, and more, and more fuel in the first few columns in each map, but it runs like crap. Seems to be a bit of a glitch, like before when running the Hypermotard algorithms only hugely more pronounced. So baffle stays in...
I set it up a bit leaner than the RB base autoadapt setting (41 instead of 42... no idea what those numbers represent) and after accepting the first trims, it seems happy, and isn't asking for more.
My charcoal canister has been relocated to the dumpster.
I have also blocked the SAI, but not with much finesse. I fashioned a plug that would block the SAI source pipe in the airbox and carefully and securely fastened it in place (wouldn't THAT be awesome to fall through a throttle body... it is rubber though, and no way it could get past valves). The result of this is strange: The bike obviously has much, much less popping and backfiring on overrun and downshifts (it was cool, but getting way beyond just obnoxious). The weirder side effect, however, is that until the engine temp gets to about 60C, the fuelling seems a bit off, and the bike has hesitation at lower revs. Once it's warm, all is well. Not sure if the hesitation is related to blocking the sai pipe, but it became pronounced as soon as I plugged the hole.
